Completing the IPEDS Ethnicity Survey

Prior to enrolling for the Summer/Fall 2010 term each student will be required to complete the Federal IPEDS Ethnicity Survey. The following is presented to assist the student in finding and completing the survey.

  1. When you login in iSIS Self Service and view the Student Center you will notice that your account will have an IPD Service Indicator. This will prohibit you from enrolling for any future term until you have completed the online Federal IPEDS Ethnicity Survey. You may also have other service indicators listed, which also must be reconciled before enrollment.
  2. To complete the survey, click on Campus Personal Information, then click on Ethnicity.

  3. Once you have clicked on Ethnicity, you will be presented with the Federal IPEDS Ethnicity Survey. If iSIS currently holds your ethnicity/race information, the choices will be filled in, or if no ethnicity/race information is maintained, the survey will look as below. Please follow the instructions on the survey.

  5. At this time, you will not be able to change your ethnicity/race information. The IPD service indicator will be removed, and assuming that you have no other service indicators prohibiting enrollment, you may enroll. Please note that you WILL NOT be able to modify your ethnicity/race information once the survey is complete.
